MTA will return to the beautiful Granlibakken Resort at Lake Tahoe for its fall "away" tournament in September. You won't want to miss this weekend of tennis and fun, so sign up soon.
The weekend will include our usual potluck gathering Friday nite, gender tennis on Saturday, Saturday nite banquet, and mixed doubles on Sunday. In addition,
there are any number of things to do in the Tahoe Basin: bicycling, hiking,
swimming, hot tubbing, shopping, boating, touring, or just laying back to enjoy
the great outdoors.

If you're not familiar with Granlibakken . . . It's at Lake Tahoe in the
forested Sierra Nevada mountains, a 4-hour drive from the East Bay. The resort
is just outside of Tahoe City, about a mile beyond "Fanny bridge."
